Director of Infrastructure Transformation


Job Req Number:  36281 
Time Type: Full Time

Do you want to use your knowledge of IT infrastructure and technology to ensure continuous development of infrastructure across our global IT operations? Are you curious on new technologies and how they are put into play to create value?

We have a highly effective and functioning IT operation, giving us the capacity to focus on development, upscaling, and new projects. This makes your newly established role even more exciting as you’ll be spearheading new development,” EVP and Head of IT Operations & Services Daniel Leegaard Heede explains.

Join an international department
At IT Operations and Services, we maintain the entire global IT infrastructure in DSV Panalpina, and we work with everything from data centres, network and storage to our Office 365 solution and local support in the countries. Here, you will join our technical force of more than 1,000 highly skilled people located all around the world supporting the organisation with crucial IT infrastructure.

Specifically, you will be taking on a new role established solely with focus on development of the infrastructure. First and primary focus will be on maturing our Hybrid Computing Platform which is based upon open source. 

In this new role, you will set off initiatives centred around the core infrastructure either as development of the existing or introduction of new infrastructure. We believe it is paramount to be in front of the development, and this role will therefore be reporting directly to the Executive Vice President and Head of IT Operations & Services. Furthermore, you will be responsible for promoting Agile ways of working and ensuring that teams deliver within these frameworks. 

Have the broader perspective on our infrastructure transformation  
It will be your responsibility to ensure coherent roadmaps across our infrastructure services and making sure we always have an updated technology radar of our infrastructure defined by the following categories: Adopt, Test, Assess and Track. 

Working from our headquarters in Hedehusene, Denmark, you will be connected to all parts of our IT organisation – and especially to IT Operations and Services and Enterprise Architecture. 

You will be the lead on transforming the infrastructure at DSV: 

  • Responsible for maintaining an overview of the infrastructure development and technical dependencies 
  • Identify and drive technology improvements to the way DSV works 
  • Perform stakeholder management on all levels of the organisation to ensure that activities are aligned 

Make your mark on our digital construction
DSV is powered through our efficient technological architecture, and your work will be a vital part of our continued growth.
This is a rare opportunity for you to leave your footprints on a global organisation. You’ll be involved in most of our future expansions, making sure that new and exciting solutions are well-established,” Daniel continues.

A frontrunner within technology
Taking on this new position, you will need to be a very self-driven individual. And while you coordinate with rest of the organisation, you work independently to translate business needs and communicate clearly and efficiently with relevant stakeholders and collaboration partners. You also bring great people skills, and you know how to convey technical concepts to C-level. 

Specifically, we imagine that you:

  • have solid experience in delivering on IT projects and digital transformation
  • have broad knowledge across infrastructure technologies and solution- or enterprise architecture 
  • have solid experience working with DevOps and SAFe methodologies – perhaps as a product owner as well as agile infrastructure development
  • have experience with Open-source products such as Kubernetes, OpenStack, Kafka, Mongo DB, PostgreSQL and Elastic Stack
  • speak and write English – Danish is not a requirement
